Where Are The Nine?


Jesus healed ten men that were lepers but only one of them turned around and gave Him thanks. Jesus asks the question, “Where are the nine?” As I read this I began to wonder how many times the Lord has done things for me and I have forgotten to give Him thanks. Ten percent of the men offered their praise and adoration for what Christ had done. I ask myself, “Do I give God thanks for even ten percent of the things He does in my life?” After considering first whether or not we are properly praising God for His goodness. We may look around and behold how good God has been to all those around us, and see the lack of worship and praise and say with Jesus, “Where are the nine?” Jesus is worthy of all our praise! Let each of us remember to give it to Him even if we are the only one.
